Adopting A Shelter Dog
These dogs come without background histories/ past medical information. We present these dogs as we have observed in relationship to age, size, breed, behavior, housebreaking, crate training, good with children, cats, dogs, and strangers. Dogs may present themselves differently in different environments, therefore The Dog Spot Rescue, their agents, volunteers, can not guarantee behavior, age, size expectations, breed, house Training, destructive behavior tendencies, and/or medical issues. All dogs from shelters have been subjected to pathogens from the shelter level which can materialize into disease in the future. Each adopter must observe for themselves pre-adoption and make decisions for themselves the suitability of said dog and their tolerance levels for transitional time when adopting a shelter dog. We ask that each adopter take their time when making the choice to bring home a rescued dog.
Perfect family dog! Not photogenic!!
Raja is truly a pretty and adorable guy. He is not photogenic however! He has a soft coat with just a little bit of fluff to it and a little fringe on the tail too. Hard to exactly tell breed, he appears to have some saint, boxer, shepherd or...? (any or all lol) in him. He is not very big, about 70 lbs and has a Saint Bernard temperment. Sweet and lovable. Easy going, walks well on a leash, good and non reactive with new dogs or situations. He is low key happy, tail aways wagging. Such a cool, relaxed boy. Excellent with children, non barker (most of the time). Raja would make a wonderful family dog or a treasured soulmate. Great hiking, camping or partner for trips to the beach.
Adoption is $400 and includes his neuter, rabies, worming, shots, heartworm test, bordatella vaccine and all dogs go home on a two week trial.
Please fill out an application at www.thedogspotrescue.org and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a meeting. Dogs are met in Elk Grove by appointment at our adoption events on Saturdays normally.
Your Adoption Fee covers the following expenses: Spay/Neuter, DHLPP, Bordatella, Rabies (if age appropriate), De-worming and Frontline/Advantage
Please Note: Shelter/rescue dogs have been exposed to many pathogens such as kennel cough, parasites, diseases and conditions some of which may not have been discovered prior to adoption. Any dog that shows symptoms here at TDS are routinely identified, taken for tests and treatment. Our vet bills can exceed $10,000 a month. However, without symptoms, we may miss a disease, or pre-existing condition or parasite. Consider carefully if you have the tolerance for these possibilities. We consider, you, the adopters, the last leg of the rescue process.
